Proposed permanent electronic message sign on Pennant Hills Road, Oatlands
The NSW Government is funding a proposal to install a permanent electronic message sign on Pennant Hills Road, between Westminster Avenue and Bettington Road, Oatlands as part of its $246 million Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s main roads particularly during weekday peak periods.
Roads and Maritime Services has undertaken an analysis of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) along Pinch Point corridors and identified opportunities to improve the ability of the Transport Management Centre to manage traffic.
Project objectives and benefits
The project is part of the NSW Government’s $246 million Pinch Point program which aims to reduce delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s main roads particularly during week day peak periods.
By installing permanent electronic message signs in key locations throughout Sydney, the Transport Management Centre will be able to display information to drivers that will enable them to make better and more informed decisions in response to any incidents that may occur on the network.
The permanent electronic message sign will be able to display real-time traffic and travel time information to road users for incidents along the James Ruse Drive corridor.
An electronic message sign at this location will provide guidance and information for road users on the Cumberland Highway, M4, Old Windsor Road and Windsor Road corridors.
Roads and Maritime sought community feedback on this proposal in September 2015 and is currently considering submissions received as part of this process. A consultation report will soon be available to the public.
The local community will be kept informed on the progress of work throughout the project. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to receive email updates.
